Early Monday morning @ approximately 06:30 hours in the frigid cold, Platte Canyon Fire responded auto aid into Elk Creek Fire Department district for a residential structure fire...

What is very special to note and to recognize about this fire incident is that the fire was initially spotted by off duty #plattecanyonfd
Wildland Fire Module Firefighter Kyle Chavez.

Firefighter Chavez called 911 reporting this structure fire that occurred near his home in the Woodside Subdivision.
After calling 911 Firefighter Chavez immediately ran to the house to see if anyone was home or needed help. When Firefighter Chavez arrived no one was outside, Firefighter Chavez knocked on doors and windows to alert occupants, 1 adult exited the house on their own.

Firefighter Chavez heard a child screaming from inside the house, without hesitation Firefighter Chavez ran inside the burning structure and found a 4-5 year old boy which he grabbed and carried to safety outside.

Firefighter Chavez, job well done does not touch on how amazingly proud we are of you.
#afirefighterisneverreallyoffduty

This is the first time in the history of the Platte Canyon Fire Protection District that a rescue of this nature had such a positive and favorable outcome, especially by an 'off duty firefighter' without any personal protective equipment donned.

Kudos to Chavez ... a couple of minutes later and this disaster could have been a tragedy.
